If you are looking to find a buyer for your home by Christmas or early next year, time is of the essence when it comes to putting your house on the market.

With less just 67 days to Christmas, if you are hoping to sell this side of New Year you must seriously consider putting your house on the market as soon as possible.

Research from Rightmove shows the average time to secure a buyer in the UK is 63 days, so we urge serious sellers to consider coming to the market promptly, and at an accurate price, to secure a sale this year.

Even if you are not hoping to secure a buyer this side of Christmas, we highly recommend you start the valuation process now with a view to bringing your property to the market before Christmas and the school holidays. Last year Rightmove saw a 5% increase in people looking for a home between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day compared with the year before and it continues to be record-breaking and the most popular time for the website, with traffic peaking over those 9 days.

So don’t delay, whether selling or letting, contact your nearest branch or visit our website to arrange your free property valuation, market appraisal and to discuss how we can help you sell your home within your desired timescale.

Make sure your property is ready for the Christmas online searching peak.
